The vibrant dragonfly design draws its inspiration from an iconic lamp screen created by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) around 1910. This exquisite leaded glass screen served as an additional barrier, hanging from the finial above the lampshade, to soften the harsh illumination produced by early electrical light bulbs. Composed of numerous intricately crafted glass pieces, the design exudes an understated elegance that can be admired but never truly replicated. Notably, this particular lamp screen resides within the esteemed collection of the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida. The Chrysler Museum of Art also boasts a diverse array of dragonfly-themed artworks, including several remarkable pieces originating from the Tiffany Studios.

Louis Comfort Tiffany

About the Artist

Louis Comfort Tiffany

Louis Comfort Tiffany was an American artist and designer who worked in the decorative arts. Throughout his career he forged a unique style that combined excellent craftsmanship with a love of nature forms and brilliant color. Though he worked with a multitude of mediums, he is best known for his work in stained glass. This beautiful design pairs Tiffany’s most famous medium with his favorite motif: the peacock. Peacock feathers featured countless times in both his personal life and his professional career. Renowned for their beauty, peacocks have both religious and secular appeal, making them the ideal design motif for Tiffany’s ecclesiastical commissions.
